STEM stars

Knowledge of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) brings out the potential in bright young people so it is at the heart of programmes organized by the HKFYG Centre for Creative Science & Technology (CCST). Many fascinating events are coming up including one all about the stars.

It's called Astronomy in the Mall and celebrates the Mid-Autumn Festival. Sponsored by the Innovation & Technology Commission, it offers youngsters exploration missions to Mars, interactive hands-on science workshops, virtual reality tours of the Northern Lights and discovery of telescope design and colour spectrometry. These are just tasters for the 3-year programme at CCST. All of it involves real-world problem-solving for today's world.
